  3. Don’t use the pepper one it will make you head all read and th peppers burn so bad so I suggest not useing that one

    1. It doesn’t burn, but the tingling sensation the blood flow from the roots to follicles. Instead of using it directly, mix it with olive oil or coconut oil.

  4. My hair has always been my pride and joy. I figured since it is pretty damn healthy, it could deal with some bleach damage. And I figured the master stylist who did all the color-corrections would know how much would be too much. I was wrong, and now I want to burst into tears every time I look at my hair or touch it. I just don’t know what to do. my hair has also NEVER been shorter than this and it breaks and falls out. What should i do to regrow hair?

    1. Apart from using the methods mentioned above follow these tips

      – Massage your scalp regularly with coconut oil or olive oil to increase the blood circulation.

      – Avoid hair styling products.

    2. Use 2 spoons honey 2 spoons olive oil and 1 egg it grows you hair for 1 inch but you have to leave the mixture in for 20 min then wash out.

        1. Raw honey is the best one to use as it contains more number of nutrients and beneficial enzymes.

    3. Follow Admins steps, and as your hair grows out cut out the damaged hair. There is no cure for split ends and if you want to conserve your hair length (or whats left of it) cut out the damage as it grows longer.

  5. I had to cut my hair very, very short due to all the products I used. What can I use to let my hair grow again. Please help

Without proper diet, remedies may show only temporary results.

    1. Regular application of castor oil can help in hair growth but it is hard to determine its growth rate as everyone is different. Hair growth depends on individual’s health condition as well. So you have to maintain a proper nutritional diet also to grow your hair fast.

  6. I have very short hair and very anxious for it to grow, considering that i use one of these methods of hair growth how long do you think it will take for my hair to grow atleast a decent length using these methods weekly

  12. helo.. i like to ask… i have been doing green tea method recently and do it everyday because i think it can boost up the result… when i see your article for doing it once in 2 weeks, i scare that my action will be bad for my hair..please reply…n thank you very much for all those info..it’s really helpful for me

    1. If it hadn’t caused any discomforts or increased hair fall, then you can use it daily. However, we recommend using it not more than 2 – 3 times a week. As sometimes, daily application of green tea can dry out the naturals oils present on the scalp.

  13. Do not do the banana one, it took me a LONG time to get it out of my hair. If you do it, use olive oil to get it out.

    1. You have to use a blender to blend the bananas completely then use it on your hair, if not you will have all that residue left in your scalp

  14. im 24 male and my front hair growing only 1 and half inch long and not more than that but the other part doing fine. maybe i will use coconut oil daily is it ok? ….. Thanks 4 the great article above will follow some of the method.

    1. Yes, it is ok. Try regularly without interruption. Apart from that eat nutritional diet and avoid processed foods.

  15. I have a very strong natural hair it can break a comb while combing it got to a point that i have to relax with relaxer each time b4 i plait… Pls what remedy should i use to make it soft, silky n long cos it doesn’t grow very well…

  16. Hi Admin, what do you suggest if it’s must wash hair everyday?how would you protect your hair and still be able to wash it dailly?

    1. It is better to avoid washing your hair daily. However if you want to then apply oil daily in the night and wash your hair in the morning. The oiling helps to prevent stripping of oils and moisture from both scalp and hair.

  17. I live in tropical country which makes my hair oily very easy. Do you think that I wash my hair once every 2 days is too often? Btw I have greasy skin type. Please give your suggestion. Thanks

    1. Washing your hair once in 2 days is good enough to keep your hair clean and remove the excess oil build-up.

    1. Nope, washing hair daily can strip off the excess oils on the scalp which makes it vulnerable for infections, dryness and weak hair follicles.

  18. So my hair is about 3 inches past my shoulder and I want it to be to below my armpit before school starts (end of the month). The problem is I am vegan so no honey no eggs. Nothing made from animals. Please help me.
